FAQs About Online Learning

How do online classes work?

While every course is unique, we can guarantee the following:

  • It will use a state-of-the-art BrightSpace™ learning management system, where you will find all of your assignments, course content, and discussion boards for interacting with your classmates and instructor.
  • The course will be interactive and use a variety of activities such as recorded lectures, video segments, games, case studies and group breakout areas.
  • The course will be of the same academic rigor and quality of all other courses. You’ll enjoy the quality of an on-campus class, with the convenience of being able to study at the beach, pool, or your favorite coffee shop.
How will I interact with my classmates and instructor?

Community is very important to the culture of Eastern University.  You will find that both your classmates and your instructor will want to communicate with you and have meaningful conversations. These conversations may happen through email, discussion boards, G-chat, or Zoom. Zoom is a program built into the learning management system that allows you to share your desktop, use a white board, and utilize video and audio capabilities.

Will I have scheduled online class times?

At Eastern University, all online courses are asynchronous. Your courses are conducted according to a schedule outlined in your course syllabus, but there are no "live" classes to attend. Instead, lectures, coursework, and discussions all take place at your convenience, allowing you to choose when and where to work on your studies. Many classes will offer optional live sessions as a way for students to connect with one another and gain extra insight into course concepts, but all of these sessions will be recorded and posted to Brightspace for those not able to attend.

Are online courses completely self-paced?

Your class follows suggested due dates for assignments to keep you on track. These are not courses that you should expect to complete in a few days. It is expected that you are in the learning management system (Brightspace) 3-5 times a week, actively participating in posting on the discussion board, submitting assignments, and viewing webinars. Courses must be completed within the scheduled block of time.

What are the technology requirements?

Our courses are compatible with Mac or PC platforms. According to Eastern University's Disclosure of Online Learning Expectations, a laptop or desktop computer is required. In order to sign up for our online classes, you should have regular access to the internet and email, as well as be familiar with creating, formatting, and attaching word processing documents.

Who will teach the online courses?

Great question! Online students are taught by distinguished faculty who are also practitioners in their fields. Many students develop strong relationships with their instructors. We often hear stories of how students credit those relationships for helping them have a successful online education experience.
